Guido has reflected on the shared culture and worldview of the Guardian and the BBC in the past;
The BBC is viewed by many right-wingers as the broadcasting arm of the Guardianistas. The Beeboids argue that this is unfair, and that the BBC is an unbiased, objective, public service broadcaster.
Yesterday the regular Guardian contributor Tim Montgomerie described the BBC as “Guardian TV“. Is this the ranting of right-wing blow-hards? No. The evidence is clear, via the excellent Biased BBC blog we learn that the BBC deliberately focuses recruitment advertising on the ranks of the Guardianistas.
Look at how it allocates the spending of hundreds of thousands of pounds on recruitment advertising:
When the BBC spends 86% of its recruitment advertising budget in the Guardian, we’re entitled to question the objectivity of the BBC’s editorial culture…
N.B. On a personal note, could BBC interviewers stop mistakenly introducing Guido as a “conservative”, if they do Guido will thank them for allowing him to appear on the left-wing BBC – as Nicky Campbell will tell you. Guido is a libertarian, not a conservative.
